Metal Settings are unplated or plated brass components, each specifically tailored to a Fancy Stone, that secure the crystal and allow for a myriad of application possibilities, including, but not limited to, sewing, soldering, and gluing. SWAROVSKI Crystals can be employed using metal settings. Crystals can be set manually (using pliers, metal spatulas or punching tools) or by machine. According to how the crystals are integrated into the metal settings, there are various types of setting, both plated and un-plated. Whenever possible, the settings should be plated before the stones are set. Design stunning pendants, bracelets, earrings and more with this selection of metal settings, perfectly calibrated to fit Swarovski fancy stones. Display the settings and crystals together, so customers can select the right setting to complement their favorite Swarovski color and shape.
